Interactional Orderliness and Disorderliness in the Malaysian Parliament
A fascinating study by a sociolinguist of the communication practices of Malaysian Members of Parliament during Question Time during the parliamentary sessions. His detailed analysis shows how communication is governed not only by everyday experiences of dialogue, but also by parliamentary rules and procedure. What is acceptable and what is not in these interactions? Yoong has developed a framework to help determine this, a framework which he suggests could be used in social interactions in other settings. New Paperback First Edition. 375 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
